10 facts following tonight (and indeed most other recent games)
1. Missing fans - I wonder why Darren?
2. Stupid pre match publicity - overly focusing on the last 9 games boasting of being unbeaten at home instead of preparing for this game and recognising that we might have to try a bit harder to win this time than in the FA Cup.
3. Missing leadership on the pitch - we haven't had an inspirational captain since Robbo left
4. Clueless management as to how to change tactics and win a game - let's carry on lumping long balls to short forwards shall we.
5. No movement especially from set pieces especially throws - so predictable and easy to defend as no-one makes a bit of space to actually receive the ball
6. A belief that passing the ball around the back 4 and to/from midfield i.e. keeping possession is going to win games. Tonight so many times players were going deep from positions on the touchline and then just passing the ball back.
7. Overpassing - taking 10 indirect passes where 3 direct might cause rather more problems to the oppositon defence
8. Not one player willing to attack the opposition defence by running at them and drawing fouls if necessary - tonight I can only recall Kennedy once getting to the byline and crossing - bring back wingers like Yemi and Wayne!
9. Another game with only one shot on target - we aren't creating anything of note game after game. As someone has said DS is a fortunate manager as he clearly is not inspiring and motiviating them at the moment. We have failed to score in 7 of the last 14 league matches.
10 Sadly a lack of passion by many players in wearing that Boro Shirt. Every game this year I hope for something better but all the manager and team seem able to do is deliver an even worse performance week after week.
I hated many of the games under Smith and Sheringham but I think this season under Sarll now ranks an even worse experience as it's so frustrating because it's such awful football. Where is the pressing and high tempo games we were promised by the manager. The solution - PW to pick someone quickly whose name doesn't begin with a "S"!
